I try not to be too rigid about my approach. It depends on my student. It is all about creating a fun and creative lesson that would be interesting for everyone. I tend to use various material such as audio and visual ones.
I approach topics the students are interested in with the communicative language teaching or the structural approach depending on which technique is more suitable according to the student’s area of interest. Or, If you prefer a more spontaneous fun way to learn ... i am open to discussions.
- I would always put emphasise on oral communication and understanding the students' needs. I like to base my input on videos and current articles as a starting point in order to increase students' understanding of the language and of some aspects of the culture that are important for their cursus.
I used to approach French with kids in a fun way like songs, games movies and conversations. I went to Madagascar for volunteering when I was 20 and we taught French by fun and easy activities, like crafting, dance...
My teaching method is based upon my student's needs and will align with their existing knowledge of the language. My aim is to use what students already have, using their own preferred skills in order to progress. Indeed, everyone has different learning preferences and functions differently.
I believe that learning a language comes with repetition and fun. Besides vocabulary lists that need to be learned, holding a conversation is the best way to improve your skills. Text and oral comprehensions are also very useful. Watching movies without subtitles then discussing them during the lesson is an enjoyable way to learn a language.
I identify the needs of the students and focus on supporting them through appropriate strategies and resources. I respond to the particular learning styles of my students, which can vary greatly. My recent experience as a VCE student and my current casual work with secondary students provide me with an insight into the expectations placed on students in order for them to succeed.
To begin with, I think that a good way to study French is to understand the logic that stands behind the language. It is known that French is hard to learn, but anyone can make it if the method is good. Since French is a living language, the most important part - in my opinion - is the oral one. This is why I would like to focus on conversation, oral expression and comprehension.
Depending on your level, I can teach you the basics of French grammar and French verb conjugating system or I can help you practice your speaking skills! Either way, practicing is key so I will come up with exercises you can relate to to help you speak/write/read and understand French !
Hi, I am a fun, caring and thoughtful teacher. I like to find out about what my students like and don’t like to find a way of teaching that each one will find interesting.
My teaching method is based on 3 criteria: the aim set by the student (for example obtaining a diploma), his weakness that I have identified after 2 lessons, and his progress regarding the exercices I give.
My teaching method is to make the student comfortable and to make the student enjoy this beautiful language. To do so, I try to understand what the student is looking for with me and from there I set a plan. I usually like to start off my lessons with a bit of conversation to set the mood.
My name is Olivia Gravier, I am from Lyon, France, and now live in Adelaide, South Australia. I am a passionate French native speaker and teacher, eager to help students who are keen to learn French for a variety of reasons. My teaching philosophy is based on the Growth Mindset, where you don't know something...yet.
I will define with you what type of tutoring you need (homeworks, conversation,...) and adapt my exercices to your needs. I think that the best way to learn a language is to speak with a native and to discover the French culture through exercices.
My teaching method will include you bringing any problems to me and I'll do my best to make sure you understand it all while having fun with it. Basically working with the resources that you already have and building up from there.
Thanks to my previous experience, my degrees, but also my curiosity and passion for travelling, I have gained an in-depth understanding of languages. I am now ready to share that to anyone who would like to learn more about the French language. Besides being a full-time traveller, I am above all an art lover: music, cinema, literature...
I tailor my teaching to each student's needs. Most of my students are complete beginners, and so lessons are based upon acquiring basic vocabulary, conversational skills, and grammar. I use a variety of media to support my lessons, including film/tv, music, games, literature, etc.
My teaching will be adjusted to the needs and interests of the individual student in question. I emphasize the importance of a strong grammatical foundation, however my primary concern for students is developing strong comprehension skills so as to equip them to engage with a variety of different learning resources.
Depending of the student goals with the lessons, I would have different methodology. If the person just want to learn another language, I think discussion and oral understanding is a good way to get started. For more advanced student, I like to go deeper into grammar (we all know how complicated it can be!) and also learn new expressions and vocabulary.
My teaching method is that the students learn by themselves. I will act as a guide to the students in order to help them find the answer to their questions. The lesson structure will go as per what they are taught in school.
The most important is to feel comfortable to speak. Express yourself in a language with what you have been learning makes you more confident and hungry to learn more.
I base my teaching methodology depending on the level in the language, to ensure fast results for motivated candidates. I also put a strong emphasis on learning deeply the basics of the language, so that the learning process becomes steadily more fluid as we go through.
My teaching method is very simple and attractive. I would introduce you to the basic vocabulary and grammar first. Then, that would be up to you to tell me what subjects you are willing to talk about and learn.
I like to go through content methodically, and in a way that makes sense, time-wise. I start by teaching practicality - the first stepping stones you would need if you were in an actual, face-to-face scenario. Then come casual conversational skills, then you go further into the correct composition of phrases and tenses, then you can begin incorporating even more vocabulary, and more cryptic tenses.
If you are a beginner, let's have some fun! You will not remember anything from a boring lesson. If you already have some knowledge of French we can talk about the subjects you like. We always start a new lesson with a review and end up with a short recap.
Having done the journey in the other direction (French to English), I understand how hard learning a new language can be, but have mastered a few tricks to make it much easier and would love to share them and take your French to the next level!
Hi everyone, I am Qween-Ann, I am Vietnamese but I used to live and study in France for 7 years and French is my second language.
I am a student in Linguistics, and I speak three languages. My lessons are geared towards anyone who wishes to learn French and students who need help and explanations as lessons at school or Uni can be hard to follow.
Hi there! I'm a 27-year-old French girl, I'm trilingual (French-English-German) and passionate about languages. I can teach conversational French, but also more academic lessons (just so you know, I'm obsessed with grammar!). I care about phonology (the way you pronounce the words) and will help you get a better accent. PS: I'm also available for German lessons.
I'm a graduate student from a French University, specialised in foreign languages. I would be happy to teach french basics to beginners, deeper grammar and vocabulary to the more experienced ones. As I am not a teacher, my teaching methods will be slightly different. I'll use various supports to help you understand the language better and progress (with videos, songs, texts).
